Josh Sargent became a Norwich City player after a final transfer from Werder Bremen.
The Canaries confirmed on Monday evening the signing of a four-year contract with a former Werder Bremen player for an undisclosed sum that may be slightly less than the club’s record 11 million euros (which was paid for the playing cards of Tim Klose, Stephen Naismith and Milot Rashika).
Sargent flew to Norwich on Monday afternoon to complete the remaining medical examinations and formally sign the papers.
“I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League, so this is a very exciting opportunity for me,” the club’s official website quoted the striker as saying. – I heard it’s a good group of guys. I’ve already spoken to the coach and I really like what they’re trying to do here – he added.
– I think I am a typical “nine”, but also very diverse. No matter where I play, everyone can expect to do my best and hopefully score some goals,” the 21-year-old said.
The American became the seventh player to sign for Norwich City this summer. He is likely to be set to play Saturday’s Premier League match against Liverpool.
Joshua Thomas Sargent was born on February 20, 2000 in O’Fallon. He took his first steps in his football career at St. Louis Scott Gallagher and joined Werder Bremen Academy in 2017.
He made his first team “Zielono-Bialy” debut on December 7, 2018 in a match against Fortuna Düsseldorf. He arrived on the field in the 78th minute of the match and scored a goal when he first touched the ball. It was the fastest junior goal in club history from Weserstadion.
The striker played 16 matches with the US national team. He managed to score five goals for his national team.
